Screenwriter Eric Heisserer, a writer and director known for The Thing (2011), Final Destination 5 (2011), A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), and Hours (2013),brings his new cinematic vision to comics in a thrilling new Dark Horse Comics miniseries titled Shaper.
Eric Heisserer aims to tell a tale in the tradition of Arthurian legends and Star Wars. With artwork by Felipe Massafera (Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors, Captain Midnight), Shaper looks to carve a niche for itself in the rich tapestry of sci-fi adventure.
The premise of the story launches readers into the stars as a galactic empire hunts a race of shape shifters prophesied to overthrow its rule. When orphaned teenager Spry discovers that he is one of the hunted—a Shaper—he must learn to use his newfound abilities to escape the empire’s prime enforcer, Tor Ajax, and save his entire race!
Shaper #1 (of 5) is on sale March 18 in comic shops everywhere
